Liberation

Edition 1995
100' - 1994 - War, Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Arnold Schwartzman Composer: Carl Davis With: Ben Kingsley, Miriam Margolyes, Patrick Stewart
Of the many documentaries on World War II, "Liberation" is unique in addressing two themes in a single film: the Allied campaign to liberate Europe and Hitler's genocidal war against the Jews. "Liberation" begins in 1942, when Hitler was still at the height of his power and the Allies began envisioning a cross-channel invasion in Europe. Combining film footage, period music and radio broadcasts collected from archives around the world, the film takes you bheind the scenes to illuminate the strategies and deception so fthe combatants on all sides. Interwoven throughout this film are the compelling stories of the Jews of Europe.
